Hi, my name is Muzeyen! Here I am looking for wildlife in the Bale Mountains National Park in Southern Ethiopia.

I was born in the small town of Dinsho in the Bale Mountains National Park, Ethiopia. I studied less than an hour away in the city of Robe and started working in tourism when I was 20 years old.

I learned Bale Mountains like the back of my hand when I worked with the Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Programme (EWCP) for 4 years as a Wolf Monitor. I spent the days in the mountains following the wolves and helping to vaccinate the wolves against rabies. As a result, I know the packs by name and knows where they live – you’re guaranteed to see wolves on any trip with me!

After working with EWCP I worked with the Frankfurt Zoological Society as a para-ecologist. I capitalized on my knowledge of the park to help study and quantify vegetation, rodents (specifically rats), took transects and helped map the park using GPS.

I am one of the most well-known guides in the park. When photographers, videographers or producers visit I always their guide! Some of my most memorable clients include Graham Norton and BBC, and professional photographers Will Burrard-Lucas, Vincent Munier and Delphin Ruche.

2 years ago, I started my own tour company. I also resourced funding to build a filtration system for washing clothes at the Denka River in Dinsho town. This filtration system keeps soaps from entering the river.

Here I am with clients in before a 5 day trek in Bale Mountains

But it is not just the Bale Mountains that I know so well. I have guided trips all over the country. Click here to see some of the places I’ll visit with you!

Looking forward to it,

    http://www.trekethiopia.orging time. My favorite destination by far was the Bale mountains and Bale Mountains National Park. The area is beautiful and stuningly diverse. You can see the alpine peaks, wildlife rich northern grasslands and the lush Harenna forest all in a few days time. This totally made my trip!
    I also am so thankful to my guide Muzeyen Turke. He recently opened a new tour company in the small town of Bale Dinsho, also the location of the park HQ, easy going, fun and have great english. They are also Dinsho natives and have considerable knowledge of the Bale area. In addition, my guide planned and went with me throughout the country, so a Bale native but very experienced with many other destinations in the country. He took great care of me and had a great understanding of prices and traveling on a budget, being flexible with trip changes as my allowances changed.
    I highly recomend these guys to any other travelers thinking about going to Ethiopia. Unfortunately, I don’t have their contact info. but I got it all from their website these guys are what any traveler needs and more! I can’t wait to return to see my friend on another outing.

    Bale Trekking Tour Company: Guided Nature
    and Cultural Tours from one of Ethiopia’s
    Most-Respected Guides
    Born and raised in the Bale Mountains National Park, Muzeyen Turke’s
    guided tours and encyclopedic knowledge of Ethiopian wildlife make this
    company the go-to for television producers, wildlife photographers, and
    eco-tourists from around the world

    Located in the center of the Horn of Africa in East Africa, Ethiopia is a
    country of approximately 99.5 million residents that is widely
    considered to be the geographical origin for the modern human
    species. It is said that, from here, Homo sapiens first set out towards
    the Middle East and beyond, eventually becoming the dominant species
    on the planet. The area has been home to a sovereign state or kingdom
    of some kind since the second millennium BC, even becoming the only
    African country to successfully turn back European colonialism in the
    19th century and retain its sovereignty.
    Today, Ethiopia is home to one of the world’s fastest growing
    economies thanks to an industrial boom concentrated in the country’s
    capital and largest city, Addis Ababa. With a rapidly rising skyline, and
    being the only city in Africa with a light rail metro system, Addis Ababa
    is one of the continent’s great cities, and an ideal entry-point into the
    the beautiful country that is Ethiopia.
    Around the world, Ethiopia is renowned for its natural beauty. As it is
    the meeting point of three tectonic plates, the country is home to some
    of the most extreme, dramatic, and impressive topography found
    anywhere on the planet. It also where many of Africa’s most amazing
    animals live, including hundreds of endangered and endemic species
    that can only be found in Ethiopia. For this reason, Ethiopia is
    considered to have an extremely high-potential tourism industry, with
    attractions ranging from the country’s incredible national parks and
    many historic sites and ancient ruins.
    Eco-tourism and cultural tourism attract hundreds of thousands of
    people to Ethiopia each year, and perhaps the most unmissable
    attraction in the country is Bale Mountains National Park, a rugged
    expanse of protected lands that covers over two-thousand square
    kilometers across multiple ecosystems in the Bale Mountains and the
    Sanetti Plateau of southern-central Ethiopia. This massive park and
    hotspot of biodiversity is best seen from the land itself, trekking either
    by foot or by horseback through the minimally-developed parklands, and
    the best tour operator for the park and other Ethiopian tourist
    attractions is Bale Trekking Tour Company, based in Bale Mountains
    National Park.
    Trek Ethiopia! Where True Expertise and Passion Come Together

    Bale Trekking Tour Company is the brainchild of Muzeyen Turke, one of
    the most renowned guides in all of Ethiopia. His intense knowledge of
    Ethiopia’s natural environments means that he is able to get his clients
    up close and personal with some of the most incredible animals on the
    planet. Turke, who was born and raised in Bale Mountains National Park,
    first started working in the ecotourism industry at the age of twenty.
    Over the years, he’s utilized and developed his knowledge of wildlife and
    the park working for many of the most important organizations working
    in conservation and science in the park. Some of his past experience
    includes four years working for the Ethiopian Wolf Conservation
    Programme (EWCP) as a Wolf Monitor, following the packs of the highly
    endangered Ethiopian Wolf and administering rabies vaccinations, and
    also working with the Frankfurt Zoological Society as a para-ecologist,
    helping to map the park using GPS technology and documenting the
    vegetation and small mammal populations living there.
    As a result of his experience and lifelong immersion of Ethiopia’s
    natural environments, Turke is regarded as one of the single best guides
    in the country, and he has been tapped to lead expeditions of major
    television programs such as Graham Norton’s visit to the park for the
    BBC program Saving Wolves and of many of the most respected and
    well-known nature photographers in the world, including Vincent
    Munier, Delphin Ruche, and Will Burrard-Lucas, who has become famous
    for his distinctive nighttime photographs of animals using remote
    camera traps.
    The Ethiopian Wolf attracts attention from all over the world due to the
    fact that it is the most endangered carnivore in Africa, and the most
    endangered canid in the world. Muzeyen Turke is perhaps the single
    most knowledgeable of the species among any tour guide in the
    country. His extensive experience working with distinctively red and
    white furred wolves means that he knows the packs individually by
    name, and any trek with him to the Bale Mountains is guaranteed to
    include sightings of these rare and beautiful animals.
    Other major destinations served by the company include Simien
    Mountains National Park, Lalibela, Axum, Gonder Habir Dar, the
    otherworldly Danakil Depression, Harar, The Omo Valley, the Caves of
    Sof Omar, and more.
    For its unrivaled expertise and ability to deliver unforgettable
    experiences to clients, for its impressive list of past clients, and for its
    growth potential in an exploding industry, Business Initiative Directions
